Fmr Mayor Bill Groom
Residents of Greenland and our surrounding area. It is with a heavy heart that my first post on our city page as your new Mayor is to convey that we have lost a dear friend and a long time community leader.
Our former Mayor, Bill Groom passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks after leaving office. Bill had his heart set on spending more time with his wife and family members after twelve years as our Mayor, and two years spent on the city council.
Mayor Groom also served on the Greenland School Board in previous years and was a great supporter of the Greenland Band, donating his time and his personal trailer (that is still in use today) for the kids to carry equipment to ball games.
I know all of us will miss Mayor Bill Groom offering his institutional knowledge around around City Hall and we offer our prayers and support to his family in this difficult time.
I want to thank Bill’s family for sharing his time with the city for so many years, and I want them to know that our city is in a much better place today because of their investment.
Please see the funeral service information for Mayor Bill Groom posted below, as it was shared with us by his wife Debbie Groom.
Funeral services will be held on Friday January 27, 2023 at 2:00pm at the Greenland High School Gymnasium. Visitation will be Thursday at Moores Chapel Funeral Home from 5-7pm.
